KUALA LUMPUR – The authorities will be fair and not in favour of any group violating the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 while conducting street demonstrations.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the authorities would not choose colours in taking action against those violating the law.
“We will be fair to all parties and not see the colour, either red or yellow in taking action.
“Appropriate action will be taken against any party that violates the law laid down under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012,” he told reporters at Parliament lobby here today.
